Lyrics

Game Size

Walking down through the street
Heading to the wind with pride
To begin another busy day and meet the world

Give me
Challenges to take
Puzzles to be solved
Decisions to be made
All done so perfectly with case

Like a breeze
The secret of success is mine

When the days is over for the night (and the lights are darkened out with ink)
And the moon's in charge of the sky (you can see the stars so sparkling)
I'm gliding down the road up high (and it feels so much like flying)
To recharge my energy and soul (for another day)

Into the night
Come with me to set yourself free
Into the night
Why not dance the night away
Into the night
Don't forget to believe in yourself
Into the night
Life is reaching for the stars

Long Version

Walking down through the street
Heading to the wind with pride
To begin another busy day and meet the world

Give me
Challenges to take
Puzzles to be solved
Decisions to be made
All done so perfectly with case

Like a breeze
The secret of success is mine

When the days is over for the night (and the lights are darkened out with ink)
And the moon's in charge of the sky (you can see the stars so sparkling)
I'm gliding down the road up high (and it feels so much like flying)
To recharge my energy and soul (for another day)

Into the night
Come with me to set yourself free
Into the night
Why not dance the night away
Into the night
Don't forget to believe in yourself
Into the night
Life is reaching for the stars

Into the night
Come with me to set yourself free
Into the night
Why not dance the night away
Into the night
Don't forget to believe in yourself
Into the night
Life is reaching for the stars

Song Production Information[1]

TOMOSUKE

TOMOSUKEこと小生です。
確か、この曲をギタドラ用に書き上げたのは2003年の冬だったと思います。もうあれから7年以上も経つんだね。
リーチンはシンプルな曲ですが、自分の基本的な作曲のスタイルがよく詰まっている曲です。
曲のテンションの開閉というか、押し引きというか。静と動を大切にしている曲です。
そしてもの凄く自分に素直に作った曲だと思います。
今回の移植にあたって、久しぶりにトラック1つ1つを聴いてみたのですが
我ながら無駄な部分で凝っていて、この曲に対する偏愛を感じましたね。
…ええ、好きですリーチン。
昔も今も、そしてこれからもずっと。
